State Prosecutor Gerrie Nel is likely to continue with his cross-examination of paralympian Oscar Pistorius for at least another day or two.
The athlete has spent six days in the witness box in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria. He stands accused of four charges, including a charge of murder.
Nel on Monday asked Judge Thokozile Masipa for an adjournment until Tuesday morning because he apparently has a long list of questions that he wants to put to the athlete without being interrupted.
Nel has told the court it’s the State’s case that Pistorius knowingly shot Steenkamp
The prosecutor indicated that these questions will once again focus on the toilet cubicle and the subsequent shooting of his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
Nel has yet to address the moments after the shooting by asking Pistorius why he phoned his friend, Johan Stander, instead of the emergency services and what their intentions were as they allegedly attempted to chase away the security guards.
Nel has told the court it’s the State’s case that Pistorius knowingly shot Steenkamp while she stood upright behind the toilet door talking to him.
